It is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. Even the term ‘hepatitis’ simply refers to inflammation of the liver. It can be caused by a number of viruses or other infections, medications, or toxins like alcohol.
Apart from hepatitis B, other hepatitis viruses that can cause injury to liver cells are hepatitis A and hepatitis C. However, these viruses are not related to each other or to the hepatitis B virus, thus they differ in number of ways like in their structure, mediums of spreading, symptoms, treatment, and the outcome of the infection. On the other side, other hepatitis viruses like hepatitis D, hepatitis E, and hepatitis G do not often cause diseases.
Hepatitis B condition does not become severe during the first one to four months after acquiring the virus and this condition generally called acute hepatitis B. However, very few adults (just 30% to 50%) develop major symptoms during acute infection.
However, if an acute infection does not resolve within six months, then the infection is regarded as chronic. A number of people with chronic hepatitis B might not experience symptoms unless their livers become severely damaged.
In case hepatitis B develops into serious liver damage, like liver cancer or cirrhosis, there are chances that symptoms might become more prominent. The symptoms mostly include fatigue, muscle weakness, poor appetite, bruising, nausea, itchy skin, weight loss, gray-colored stools, jaundice and fluid accumulation in the lower extremities, which have further discussed below.
One of the most common and underestimated symptom of hepatitis B is fatigue. However, in the acute cases, doctors generally advise patients’ bed rest and low physical exertion. While in the chronic phase, the medical provider most probably try to rule out any other medical conditions that can contribute to fatigue, like depression, pain, insomnia, thyroid problems and sleep apnea.
Those with hepatitis B are likely to experience a severe appetite loss along with a significant weight loss. For a proper diagnosis, make sure to discuss this with your health care provider as he might further refer you to a nutritionist or dietician.
Some people with hepatitis B generally feel discomfort in their right upper part of the abdomen around the liver area. As the liver does not have any nerve cells, this problem is mostly caused by the capsule surrounding the liver along with nearby organs. Those patients who experience pain should always discuss it with their medical provider, mainly in cases where there is constant or severe pain, and that interferes with their quality of life.
Fever is another common symptom associated with hepatitis B. However to get rid of it always ask your doctor whether you can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or not. Moreover, make sure you should not take more than directed dose as Tylenol can harm the liver in case you exceed the recommended dose.
Hepatitis B sufferers generally report the cases of nausea. However, those who feel nauseous should try to eat a little amount of food at regular intervals. As hunger can exaggerate nausea, thus, try to eat a cracker or other small piece of food every hour or two.
Muscle and Joint Aches
Muscle and joint pains are other common symptoms of hepatitis B. These both need medical evaluation. Health experts suggest that performing moderate exercises and staying active are the two best ways to manage physical discomfort.
Jaundice is a medical condition in which the skin and the whites of the eyes turn yellow in colour. It can also be a sign of Hepatitis B, therefore, it is important to consult your doctor as soon as possible if you face any of these signs.
